If Sen. John Cornyn needs help in making a decision concerning removing Trump from office here is some advice: Either vote to remove this cancer from your party, or we will vote to remove you from Congress in November.

It really is that simple.

John R. Cobarruvias and his band of Trump haters would not vote for Sen. John Cornyn even if the Senator was the only name on the ballot in November. Haters gotta hate.

Gary Scoggin

As opposed to the Trump worshippers who would vote for the man even if he stood on Fifth Ave. and shot someone. Worshippers gotta worship.

Carlos Ponce

"Trump worshippers who would vote for the man even if he stood on Fifth Ave. and shot someone." You're a little younger than me but not much, Gary. It was a hyperbolic expression and most recognized it as such. Growing up in Texas City schools we had an expression for lax substitute teachers: "You can get away with murder in her class." Was that actually true? No. When Trump made the statement, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters," he was expressing the loyalty of his voters. And his supporters would say if he shot someone on 5th Avenue he probably had a good reason. Stopping a BAD HOMBRE from harming someone.

Would Gary Scoggin ever shoot someone? Only if he had a good reason.

George Caros

Carlos I guess you approve of all his sexual assaults also

Carlos Ponce

No, George Caros. And it seems that those on both sides of the aisle have committed them. Noteworthy is Bill Clinton''s alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick which seems credible to most except the "Me Too" movement which ignores alleged sexual misconduct committed by Democrats. More current is the sexual assault by Democrat Virginia lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax. Add to the list Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Virginia, Nevada state Senator Ruben Kihuen (D), Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., etc, etc. etc. But anyone can accuse anyone of anything.

Bailey Jones

Hmmm... so you would vote for Beto if he was the only name on the ballot? Or are you some sort of Beto hater in a Beto hating boy band? And which member of the band? I'm guessing you would be the sensitive one,

Carlos Ponce

I don't hate anyone but NO'Rourke's views would prevent my voting for him.

Charles Douglas

Yeah but he got me curious ,... who is the we ..who are going to vote him out of Congress? Hate is a negative emotion which facilitates a sick heart, evil decision making, and dangerous pathways taken in life. Overall it means no Self-control. It is written: ("A man with no self-control over his own spirit is like a city broken down with no walls!"....Proverbs 25 :28). I suspect the author of this article knows what happened to the City of Jericho when the walls around it fell down. Hate is so contagious that if allowed in a man's heart unchecked, it will spread throughout the body causing hateful words, causing hateful thoughts, causing hateful decisions, causing hateful actions, causing hateful habits, which forms a flawed character, all instrumental in an individual arriving at an unfavorable destination. Go forth now, that the eyes of your understanding has been enlightened by a Trumpite, .. and HATE TRUMP NO MORE!!!!!!!!![beam]

Charles Douglas

Seriously though, the author is doing all of what I listed in my prior post to himself, and President Trump is still President of America with FIVE more years to serve! That makes no sense!!!! Don't do that to yourself! I care about you Sir! Stop that......!

Bailey Jones

It is really simple, but the author needs a reality check - Republican Senators will acquit the president. Texas Republicans will reward Cornyn with another 6 years, and then deliver Texas to Trump.

We may wish otherwise.

Charles Douglas

Know something Mr. Jones? You would make a heck of a conservative! Oh Yeah, no question about it! You and Gary. Yall are right there at the edge of jumping off that same LIBERAL/ MODERATE mountain respectively, into that conservative ocean ...where I jumped from.. some years ago. I can't begin to tell you what it feels like to just grab your nose and JUMP!!! Lolo. See, it is that Two Edged Sword talked about in Hebrews 4:12 which causes change in a man you see. That's why people like the conservatives on this forum, and in many other places are sharing spirit base mindsets you see. That Two Edged Sword will cut you going, and cut you coming back the other way. It will cut you going up, and it will cut you coming down! Sometimes it cuts the one swinging it too!!!!! Ahhhaha!!! [beam]

Bailey Jones

That would be a big NO, Charles. Being able to recognize reality is simply part of being a progressive.

Gary Scoggin

Those that took an oath to to be fair and impartial in this matter also need to consider that they have been warned “ 'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike,“. Let’s see Cornyn’s courage quotient on this.

Carlos Ponce

'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike' The ONLY person who ever said that was Democrat Adam Schiff. It came from NO Republican.

Charles Douglas

You mean the same "SHIFTY SCHIFF" who swore he had indisputable evidence of guilt by Trump doing the two years and forty million dollar HOAX counter-intelligence, faķed FISA WARRANT MUELLER investigation? The same Schiff, who read a made-up statement on the floor of the House Of Representatives attributed to the President's coercion of the President Of the Ukraine? The same Adam Schiff, who took a call from someone he thought was a Russian agent giving dirt on a Naked Trump when he visited Moscow? The same SHIFTY SCHIFF who is hiding the transcript of the DEEP STATE whistleblower interface with the Justice Department? The same Schiff who hid out in the Congress basement manufacturing evidence against the President, refusing him due process, yet crying like a new born babe in the Senate for .....( Wait For It )......DUE PROCESS?

Jim Forsythe

Senator Rand Paul issued a warning to his colleagues that if “some Republicans help Democrats get witnesses and there are no witnesses for the president...the end result is a revolutionary tide against those people. I can’t imagine that [Trump] will let it go by if someone votes to bring in witnesses that his administration isn’t interested in.”

Trump’s legal team has already come up with a plan of action to silence witnesses by invoking national security concerns. That would put testimony from Bolton and maybe others in a classified setting, which would certainly look like they have something to hide, but which experts say would probably be better than the alternative. “Democrats will ask, ‘Don’t the American people deserve to know the truth?’” . “On the other hand, [Republicans] may well calculate that public testimony would create uncertainties that they’re willing to go to considerable lengths to avoid.”

Carlos Ponce

There's more to it than that, Jim.

“If you vote against Hunter Biden, you’re voting to lose your election, basically. Seriously. That’s what it is. If you don’t want to vote and you think you’re going to have to vote against Hunter Biden, you should just vote against witnesses, period. My first preference would be to be done with it as soon as possible and not to have any witnesses. If they insist on having people like Bolton coming forward, my insistence will be not just one witness. But that the president should be able to call any witnesses that he deems necessary to his defense."

Now, that sounds NOTHING like Schiff announced.

Jim Forsythe

All witnesses should be called. If they are not there will be always a what are they hiding question.

This includes Trump. Let Trump testify to what he knows.

As trump has been impeached, he should be more than happy for the chance to prove he has nothing to hide.

Carlos Ponce

"All witnesses should be called..." And they'll keep calling and calling and calling. The longer this continues, the longer Democrats can say nasty things on the Senate floor. Start with Hunter Biden, limit the number of witnesses. Of course, Democrats don't want either Biden to testify. They only mentioned the Bidens several hundred times in testimony so the idea they don't know anything pertinent is asinine.

Emile Pope

The Bidens aren't accused of crimes. Your president is...

Jim Forsythe

When I said All witnesses should be called, it included Hunter Biden or anyone else, including Trump that is involved in this.

Bolton, Lev Parnas ,Rudy Giuliani, Mike Pence , William Bar are others that need to be called. These are people with first hand knowledge that need to be heard, so we the people hear about what actually happened. It looks like Friday they will vote on, can witnesses be called. If they want to be accused of hiding facts, they will vote no.

Carlos Ponce

Joe Biden is accused of Violating:

1) Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (15USC78dd-1)

It is illegal for a U.S. person to coerce or influence through bribery, extort a foreign into taking action that might financially benefit that person, his family or business.

2) Bribery (18USC201b)

Whoever corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to a public official to influence that public official is guilty of bribery.

3) Gratuities Act (180SC201)

Giving, offering, or promising anything of value to a public official in exchange for any official act is a violation of the gratuities act.

4) Hobbs Act-Extortion (18USC 1951)

A threat to a foreign official in order to obtain an official benefit affecting interstate or foreign commerce would constitute extortion under the Hobbs act.

if what Joe Biden said is true: "I remember going over (to Ukraine), convincing our team … that we should be providing for loan guarantees. … And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from (then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko) and from (then-Prime Minister Arseniy) Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor (Shokin). And they didn’t. ...

"They were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, ... we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president.’ … I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. ... I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bi*ch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."

Carlos Ponce

Hunter Biden is linked to a 2016 identity theft involving his dead brother Beau Biden and a person named “Joseph McGee.”

Hunter Biden is implicated in a money-laundering scheme linked to Ukrainian company Burisma.

The case against Hunter Biden filed by a woman who had his child. Hunter and his pregnant wife currently reside in a multi-million dollar home in California.

Jim Forsythe

What does Hunter Biden having a baby, have to do with the Ukraine investigation?

What does identity theft have to do with the Ukraine investigation?

What does, what happened in Prescott, Ariz., have to do with Ukraine? He was in Prescott for rehab.

What does Hunters multi-million dollar home in California have to do with the Ukraine investigation?

Biden, 49, “is the subject of more than one criminal investigation .

Substitute Trump for Biden and the same is true.

Carlos Ponce

Jim, keep up!- Emile posted "The Bidens aren't accused of crimes." While not paying child support has nothing to do with the Ukraine, it is still a crime. Emile did not limit his post to only pertaining to the Ukraine.

Emile Pope

Who is making the accusation? Why isn't the Justice Department investigating? Where are the charges? The only one accused of a crime is donald. The only one on trial is donald.

Carlos Ponce

"Who is making the accusation?" The Justice Department.

"Why isn't the Justice Department investigating?" They are but that would require testimony from the Ukraine which would not sit well during the impeachment trial and Election cycle. They'll take care of it after Trump is re-elected.

"Where are the charges?" The Justice Department.

"The only one accused of a crime is donald." Can you name the Federal crime he is accused of? The Impeachment findings sent to the Senate don't name any crime or USC number on the books. "

The only one on trial is donald." The trial will one day be over with no removal from office.

Note to Emile: Not capitalizing a proper name is an affront to your English teachers who taught you better.

Jim Forsythe

If that what you are talking about, how about all the crimes that Trump is accused of? How many has been proven against Trump? How many have been proven against Hunter?

The list that you have about Joe Biden, are the same ones that Trump has done. Is any one looking into Joes alleged offences for charges?

Carlos Ponce

"how about all the crimes that Trump is accused of?" Unsubtantiated accusations.

"How many has been proven against Trump?" None.

"How many have been proven against Hunter?" Wait until after either Joe Biden is out of the running or if nominated, after Trump wins. To reveal what they know now would look like a political dirty trick.

Emile Pope

Opposing someone because of their actions and intentions isn't hate. And dismissing their dissent by calling it hate is a weak defense. Interesting how opposition to President Obama wasn't called hate. Or that people who criticized him and his policies weren't told to leave the country. But then hypocrisy never seems to bother them...

Carlos Ponce

No it's Trump hatred at its worst, Trump Derangement Syndrome at its best. Read the letter. Describing Trump as a "cancer" is not "Opposing someone because of their actions and intentions". It's pure hatred.

Jim Forsythe

Rick Perry said this against Donald Trump .

"Let no one be mistaken Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded," Perry said during a speech in Washington, D.C. "It cannot be pacified or ignored for it will destroy a set of principles that has lifted more people out of poverty than any force in the history of the civilized world and that is the cause of conservatism."

Carlos Ponce

Jim, that was said almost five years ago when Perry was running against Trump for nomination as president. Since then he's had nothing but praise for the president. Time to catch up, Jim. Set your mind to 2020, not 2015.

Jim Forsythe

You mean the Rick Perry that was part of Ukraine mess. He was not forced to say Trump is a cancer, but he said it. If you can not believe what he says, why listen to anything he says.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry has told President Trump he is resigning amid scrutiny related to his role in the Trump administration’s diplomacy in Ukraine.

His resignation ends his tenure as the last original Cabinet head from the core energy and environment agencies, after the EPA’s Scott Pruitt and Interior’s Ryan Zinke quit while facing investigations over their ethics. They are just a few that are no longer with Trump, and some are in jail or waiting to be sentenced. Would you agree, that these men are also a cancer? Trump did say he only hires the best. If they are the best whom were the ones Trump determined were not the best. How many of Trumps generals are still with him?

Guess they were not some of the best!

Charles Douglas

Jim, so what? Perry did not mean it. He turned around and worked for the man! Mittens Romney called Trump a Fraud, a Hoax, and a Charlatan, but turned around a little later and begged the same Charlatan for a job of Secretary of State. Trump still made a big mistake by giving that job to MISFIT named Rex TILLERSON ..when a Rudy Giuliani was there for the asking.Political Rhetoric!

Jim Forsythe

What did Perry mean? Why did he say that about anyone, unless he meant it. Is he the same as Trump, you have to interrupt what he says, because Trump did not mean it.

Donald Trump says he only hires 'the best people.' Here are some of the people he's hired. These are just a few beside the ones going to jail for misdeeds, while working for Trump.

His campaign office in Jefferson County, outside of Denver, was being run by a 12-year-old boy.

His first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, had battery charges filed against him after he grabbed a female reporter and bruised her arm.

His next campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was accused of taking $12 million from a corrupt Ukrainian politician with ties to Vladimir Putin and helping to stoke anti-American protests that targeted U.S. Marines.

His new campaign manager, Steve Bannon, was charged with domestic violence by his then-wife; has been cited for fraudulently registering to vote in Florida; and threatened to kick a woman's ass while managing an environmental science project called Biosphere 2.

One of his chief campaign advisers, Roger Ailes, resigned from Fox News after at least 20 female employees accused him of sexual harassment

His first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, had battery charges filed against him after he grabbed a female reporter and bruised her arm.

His next campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was accused of taking $12 million from a corrupt Ukrainian politician with ties to Vladimir Putin and helping to stoke anti-American protests that targeted U.S. Marines.

Bill Stepien, a former aide to Chris Christie who was fired for his role in the Bridgegate scandal that helped torpedo Christie's governorship.

His personal doctor, Dr. Harold Bornstein, inflated his credentials and lied about membership in an organization for gastroenterologists, in a medical letter that bragged Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

His longtime butler, Anthony Senecal, wrote that Barack Obama was a "prick" who "needed to be hung for treason" and referred to Michelle Obama as "Sasquatch."

His military advisor, Al Baldassaro, called for Hillary Clinton to be shot by a firing squad for treason.

His foreign policy advisor Walid Phares previously trained a Lebanese militia that carried out the murders of hundreds of civilians.

Another foreign policy advisor, Joseph Schmitz, was accused of anti-Semitism in a lawsuit after allegedly bragging that he "fired the Jews" while working at the Department of Defense.

His chief spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, has accused Barack Obama of starting the war in Afghanistan.

The private equity firm run by his economic advisor Wilbur Ross was fined $2.3 million by the SEC for failing to properly disclose fees to investors.

His former campaign director in North Carolina, Earl Phillip, was sued after allegedly pulling a gun on one of his employees.

A California delegate selected by the Trump campaign, William Daniel Johnson, was forced to resign after it turned out he was a prominent white nationalist who has called for U.S. citizen only for those with "no ascertainable trace of Negro blood."

These are the best people in the United States according to Trump.

Carlos Ponce

So sad when someone who is going to vote does not recognize political rhetoric.

Charles Douglas

Jim, I told you why Perry said what he said about Trump one minute and a little later accepted a job from Trump! ( Why would he do that? ) Then he started talking good about Trump! So was he lying earlier, or later, or WAS HE JUST LYING? I told you before all that is just Political Rhetoric, please quit bringing RACE up everytime you have trouble making a point! That's not fooling anybody, and it is getting old by the minute!

Jim Forsythe

Charles , what race commit are you talking about? It was not me that said all the induvial that I listed did those things. All of the things listed , happened.

I had not trouble of making the point that Trump said his hires were the very best, and they are not. What are the commits that have you all upset?

Charles Douglas

Jim, my mistake, not your fault...I misread your statement on Daniel Johnson! My apology for that, and I was not upset, I was trying to helm you up but you got away from me. Lolo.

Jim Forsythe

Charles, I take it very serious when someone accuses me of racism. You said that I bring race up every time I have trouble making a point, which means you think

that it was not just this time, but other times.

When you refer to Adam Schiff as "SHIFTY SCHIFF" I take offence not because I I'm a fan of Adam Schiff but because he is a member of the House and deservers more respect than being called a name that a that a 5 year old would make up. It is the same reason that you will not see me calling Trump any of the hundreds of names that he is called.

I accept your apology because I know that you are sincere about it.

If I ever offend you. please let me know.

Carlos Ponce

"he is a member of the House and deservers (SIC) more respect than being called a name that a that a 5 year old would make up."

You mean a five year old is smart enough to figure out this person is "Shifty"? Smart kid! Schiff has not earned our respect. In fact, he has earned contempt.

Carlos Ponce

Jim, do you have respect for Senator Joe McCarthy (R-WI)? History will record Adam Schiff in a similar vein as "Tail gunner" Joe. Or do you think the "R" makes a difference?

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, have you not said the even if someone does not like Trump, the office of the President should be respected. The same goes for a Senator or a House member.

When someone starts with name calling, they expose short comings in their ability to commutate, by sinking to using a crutch. It does noting but reveal a person charter. Trump has over 100 names that people have given him, that should not be used, I hope you do not want the GDN forum to become a name calling place. If not,stop with the names.

Jim Forsythe

It is up to you to decide if you respect the man, Joe McCarthy. The office of Senator, should be respected.

What has Adam Schiff done, that you think is that bad?

Carlos Ponce

"When someone starts with name calling, they expose short comings in their ability to commutate (SIC), by sinking to using a crutch." Jim's opinion.

Political nicknames go way back, some nice, some not so nice:

Honest Abe Lincoln, the Great Emancipator

Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher

British Bulldog Winston Churchill

The Governator Arnold Schwarzeneggar

Rough and Ready Zachary Taylor

Dubya - George W. Bush

Ten Cent Jimmy James Buchanan

Martin Van Ruin - Martin Van Buren

Peanut Farmer Jimmy Carter

Slick Willie Bill Clinton

Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown

Mittens Mitt Romney

Tricky Dick Richard Nixon

Father of Our Country George Washington

Shifty Adam Schiff

The Turtle Mitch McConnell, etc.

By the way, Jim Bowie did not like being called "Jim". He called himself JAMES Bowie.

Carlos Ponce

" The office of Senator, should be respected." That does not apply to the individuals who hold that office. Ditto for House members. They earn respect.

Jim Forsythe

The figure is 1,334,550, which is the number of republicans Voter in New Jersey.

Jim Forsythe

So, you do not think that the office of the President deserves respect. Are you saying it open season on Trump? Just one site has over 409 names for Trump and that is just that one. If you want to precipitate in name calling, you can, but it just shows your maturity. Please do not change the GDN to one of those sites that flaming each other with name calling, is all that happens.

Carlos Ponce

President Trump deserves my respect for what he has accomplished. You, who believe in unsubstantiated accusations and innuendo about him, apparently do not respect him. Sounds like a PERSONAL problem.

Dalton Logan

Mr. Cobarruvias, contemplate on this for a while, President Trump has been ask to attend a rally in New Jersey, I think they said it will seat 7000 + people. 170,000 people have ask for tickets, this in a democratic state. Go figure[innocent]

Emile Pope

According to who. The Ministry of Truth?

And since you presented this post twice, I ask again, where is your proof this is the number of tickets requested?

Jim Forsythe

number of republicans Voter in New Jersey.

Carlos Ponce

That was not answer the question. That's okay, Jim, I am not grading you on this....

Maris Helfrich

AMEN! John C. And I might add Cruz to that!

Carlos Ponce

Let your heart not be troubled, Maris. In Texas their vote against removal of Trump will be dealt with in their re-election - Sen. John Cornyn this year and Sen. Cruz in 2022 unless the good senator chooses to run for higher office again.
